Hey corry, I don’t think it was that uncommon for ‘regular’ folks to dance out in the hallways too. There was often more space to do your thing. Of course the sound was more distant, but I do remember at some west coast spots like the Kaiser there were speakers set up in the hallway. At many venues folks used to prop the doors open with trash cans or something to let the music out.

One of my favorite aspects of both Kaiser and SF (now Bill Graham) civic was the freedom to roam around the hallways and in and out of the arena - it felt like part of the same overall environment (esp Kaiser). Hell, it's not like there was any need to be looking at the stage. In fact, I recall really hating the backdrops they had by the time I saw them on Jer's last gasp tour - the vids of the parking lot scene, etc.
